Peasant Dress


Peasant Dress

This dress I made as a Christmas gift for my second-youngest sister (also the one I made the 40’s style dress for).  The dress is similar to the Hobbit dress I made. As my sister’s favorite color is yellow, that’s what I made the theme 🙂  There’s a shirt/chemise of a pastel yellow, gathered at the neck and elbows with embroidery thread.  The skirt is a patterned, straight skirt, gathered at the waist with a drawstring.  The vest is the from Hobbit vest pattern, only in yellow felt.

The doll came from a different dollar store than where I usually get dolls, hence those funny pink shoes that don’t match at all 🙂

Jeans outfit


The jeans for this outfit I made a while ago–by hand and by trial-and-error.  I added the T-shirt later.  The jacket is from a store.

I got this handmade jeans vest from my younger sisters on my birthday. Pretty neat, huh?

I really like German Shepherds 🙂

Hobbit dress


Hobbit dress

Okay…I know, these fashion dolls are definitely built more like Elves than Hobbits, but I wanted the variety, so I made this one.  It’s shorter than it looks–a little below the knee.  It’s loosely based on Rosie’s party dress (at Bilbo’s 111th birthday).  But it could be any generic Hobbit-girl.

The chemise, a basic T-shape (no set in armholes), has a gathered neck and sleeves and is the wrong side of a floral material, so you can see the print, which I liked. The skirt is a gathered straight skirt. I used a decorative applique-like stitch to fix the piece of cloth with the embroidered flower to the bright blue felt vest.

This Eowyn dress is a really pretty one featured in “The Return of the King.” It is shown in 1 long shot like this; then the brown skirt is worn with it when Eowyn wears the outfit in the Rohan camp.

This outfit is the first Eowyn dress I made.  The white chemise and skirt were made from a T-shirt and the vest and corset from brown felt, embellished with gold glitter paint.  If I’d had brown material I would’ve made the camp skirt, but I didn’t, so I couldn’t  😦
